MASSAPEQUA, N.Y. — Video shows firefighters wading through chest-high water to battle a fully involved house fire during Superstorm Sandy.

The Massapequa Fire Department crews try to prevent the massive blaze from spreading to a neighboring home, but the person who posted the video says both homes were destroyed.

Water levels were at five feet and rising.
